I'm grateful for sunshine and checking things off the do-list.
I'm grateful for people of high moral character.
I'm grateful for healthy, personal boundaries.
I'm grateful for smiles and laughter, the hand that passes the tissue box and a shared moment between strangers in the checkout line.
I'm thankful for photography and music. For writers and people who do it better than I do. I'm so grateful for the ability to see my weaknesses and to do something about them.
I'm grateful for the option of homeschooling, for voting and for driving at any time of the day or night without passing through checkpoints.
I'm grateful for the off-button on the television, the channel changer on my radio and option to wear whatever I deem appropriate for me.
I'm grateful I'm not under severe judgment, and for the fact that I do not live today attempting to please those who refuse to be happy.
I'm grateful for computers, people who know how to fix computers and for all those that have made it all possible for the average person to own one in their home.
I'm grateful for stores that don't gouge their customers with unfair prices, for store employees that actually believe in customer service and for times when businesses give the customer a break.
I'm thankful for idealists who set the bar high for all us realists and cynics.
I'm thankful for things and services that work the first time...just the way they are supposed to.
I'm thankful for good days, laughter which mends the heart, people who understand and care and for that deep breath of fresh air as you step outside on a sunny, spring day.
The minute a man ceases to grow, no matter what his years,
that minute he begins to be old.
If wrinkles must be written on our brows,
let them not be written upon the heart.
The spirit should never grow old.
~James A. Garfield
Those who love deeply never grow old;
they may die of old age, but they die young.
I'm not interested in age. People who tell me their age are silly.
You're as old as you feel.
~Henri Frederic Amiel
So...what are you grateful for this week?
